I find it ridiculous that someone would argue that age has anything to do with knowledge or opion. It has nothing to do with either. I actually see myself as a feminist and agree with your opion fully. Woman are not oppressed, men are just favored

In what way are men favored?

Exactly.

Although, I have to point out that patriarchy doesn’t exist in third world countries either. A patriarchal society would favor men over women. But that’s really not how third world countries work.

Anyone can be oppressed in third world countries but men are not the oppressors. Religion, rich people and the government oppress people. And these people include literally everyone. Not just women.

Women not opressed in the western world? Seriously? Do we live in the same world? Maybe the problem isn’t partiarchy but women are sitll opressed damn it.

The rules of the game are just different.

No. Do you even know what the word oppression means? If women were oppressed, we wouldn’t have ANY kind of right (or maybe just a little amount of rights), ridiculous laws would forbid us to do anything we enjoy, we could be enslaved, people who own us would treat us like shit and beat the hell out of us when we don’t obey, our freedom would be entirely restricted etc.

So you think the Western world is like that?

No, the problem is just that you’re 17 and you have a very simplistic idea of what oppression is. Wait a few years and then join an activism movement once you understand what’s going on. Meanwhile, listen and learn. Ask questions and provide constructive criticism when you think you see room for improvement, but don’t pretend that you’re an authority on the matter. I’m only 20, so I’m not claiming to be an authority, either, but it seems that I’ve been privileged enough to receive a better quality of education regarding these matters than you have (“Maybe just a little amount of rights,” for fuck’s sake, really?), and at least I recognize that I’m still learning. And don’t you dare claim to know that women in third world countries don’t face oppression for being women.

The problem is that you compare my knowledge about the world to my age. Which I get a lot from people when I argue about something. Like their argument is that I’m too young to know something about the world.

I have never claimed that my knowledge about the world is final and perfect. I’m constantly reading articles and watching videos about feminism and the injustice in the world. I always have something new to learn.

I have never been oppressed in any way but I’ve been learning about oppression. And sorry if I didn’t mention the other hundred thousand features of oppression. I thought I’d just give that person an idea of what oppression is really like considering she thought that women are oppressed in the Western world. But here you are, claiming that my idea of oppression is simplistic yet you didn’t bother to explain why. If you think I’m wrong about something, at least try to correct me so that I can reconsider my thoughts.

My age is really insignificant in this matter considering we’re both finghting for the same cause, which is gender equality. But the difference between you and me is that I don’t want to choose women’s issues over any other gender’s issues. I want to address every gender’s issues equally. Regardless of your gender, suffering is horrible and no one should just emphasize the problems of one group of people claiming that they suffer more and in the meanwhile forget about the fact that not just women can suffer.

17 isn’t too young to know about these things. You’ve just made it obvious that you don’t. Your age helps explain it, that’s all. I said last time I argued with you that I’m not going to waste my time explaining. You seem to have made up your mind for the time being. I’m not too concerned about your ignorance. You’re only 17. You’ll learn in a few years.

It’s wonderful that you want to help different groups of people. You seem to be forgetting that feminism is about women, though. Plenty of feminists are involved in other causes, and third-wave feminism focuses on intersectionality anyway.

I only asked for constructive criticism on why you think I have a superficial knowledge. Me not agreeing with you is not ignorance. Feminists are not supreme people who know everything better than anyone who disagrees with their claims.

The way you explain third-wave feminism is all very nice and I’d gladly be one of them if that was actually true. I just seriously don’t understand how feminists can’t see their own hypocrisy.

A thousand years time? You won’t remember me. 

Yes I will. I promise. I will.

I mean one minute you’re in 1974 looking for ghosts, but all you have to do is open your eyes and talk to whoever’s standing there. To you I haven’t been born yet. And to you I’ve been dead a hundred billion years. Is my body out there somewhere? In the ground?

they were right. guns don’t kill people. people kill people. people are now illegal and the crime rate is zero

raggedy-smth replied to your post: anonymous asked:women suffer MORE…

The fact that people still think some people suffer more than other people is the problem. Suffering is not a contest. If someone suffers, they suffer. There is no gauge to that. Suffering is terrible no matter the person or the situation.

Yes, Jake! You’re awesome. Thank you!

Today is the Transgender Day of Visibility! According to Trans Student Equality Resources:

TDoV is a day to show your support for the trans community. It aims to bring attention to the accomplishments of trans people around the globe while fighting cissexism and transphobia by spreading knowledge of the trans community. Unlike Transgender Day of Remembrance, this is not a day for mourning: this is a day to be empowered and get the recognition we deserve! 

Trans followers, I support, respect and celebrate you 100%. Each and every one of you is totally badass. Keep bein’ you. And to find a TDoV event near you, click here

I want to bring something up to my followers right quick before I log off for the night.

These are some messages that showed up in a dear friend of mine’s inbox. They are in reference to a post about cisphobia specifically.

When you talk about cisphobia, and heterophobia, and claim it doesn’t exist and that majority members aren’t burdened with problems, I want you to remember this post.

These are messages sent specifically for her, to try and trigger her. Now, this particular friend of mine has survived more abuse and hardship than I care to recount, but needless to say, is one of the strongest people I know.

And over one single post, that wasn’t even on her blog to begin with, triggered this nonsense.

Take a good hard look at these. All of them degrade her for being cisgendered. Two of them claim she couldn’t possibly know anything about “struggling.” One is a rather graphic death threat. All over an immutable trait she cannot possibly have helped.

If the situation were reversed and her inbox were filled with “tranny scum fucktard” do you think I would even be having to post this? No. It would have blown up, nobody would have thought twice about it.

But you claim that this is “venting.” That being oppressed somehow grants you the right to be a special breed of hateful. That your struggle grants you the right to tell a self-harm recoverer that she ought to slit her throat, that her struggle is irrelevant.

This is what your movement has become. Take a good, hard look at your brand of “equality.” You should be ashamed of yourselves.

This is not and will not ever be ok if you are a minority or a majority you still NEVER send hate im cis and im white granted im gay but jesus i will not be ashamed of it just as you shouldn’t be ashamed if you aren’t cis or white we are PEOPLE first and genders/races/sexualities second its not difficult to treat people how you want to be treated.

women suffer MORE than men when they shouldn't. of fucking course men suffer too. what are you.

If we’re looking at third world countries then yes, women might suffer more but that doesn’t mean we should exclude the issues of other groups of people. I’d rather feminists focused on third world countries because the oppression of people is actually relevant there. But if they only want to save women from being oppressed then they would prove how hypocritical most feminists are about gender equality.
